Carbery Group sets milk price for June

Carbery Group has become the latest processor to reveal its milk price for June supplies.

The Co. Cork group is increasing its milk price for June by 0.5c/L.

A spokesperson for Carbery Group said:

If this decision is replicated across the four west Cork co-ops; Bandon, Barryroe, Drinagh and Lisavaird, this will result in an average price for June of 31.9c/L including VAT.

“This price consists of a 1c/L increase in the base price and a reduction of 0.5c/L in support being paid from the stability fund (1c/L in support continues to be paid from the stability fund) giving a net increase of 0.5c/L.

“The price is exclusive of somatic cell count (SCC) or any other adjustments which may be made by the co-ops,” the spokesperson concluded.

In a breakdown of co-op prices among the group, Barryroe’s variable milk price for June is up 0.5c/L and stands at 32.76c/L including the SCC bonus, VAT and the 1c/L from the Carbery stability fund, with Lisavaird matching this. This is for milk at constituents of 3.3% protein and 3.6% butterfat.

Bandon Co-op will pay its members 31.86c/L including VAT. This does not include an SCC bonus of 0.527c/L.

Meanwhile, Drinagh will pay its members 32.01c/L including VAT, also not including the SCC bonus of 0.527c/L.
